A wonderfully well-balanced mature Shiraz. Concentrated, ripe blackberry and black currant fruit with creme de cassis flavors. Slight spiciness with notes of fresh baked pie crust. Soft and rounded tannins are fully integrated. Even with all this, this aged Shiraz has evolved into a more elegant, more restrained Shiraz that is very pleasurable to drink. Finishes with good length that lingers on the palate.
